Considering that Ann Taylor Loft had an additional 40% off on sale items, I took the chance to head to Prudential for a quick shopping break. I snagged the dress that I thought was super lovely for spring/summer but can be upgraded for a holiday occasion with a black turtle neck underneath and a nice skinny belt.
Though only to realize I had bought the wrong size. Ugh, you know when the excitement hits you so hard you can barely contain? Yeah, I was holding two dresses, one clearly didn't and the other did but I put the wrong one back on the rack. Final purchase for $12, which isn't bad, but totally crushed me because it didn't fit properly.
I did manage to get a double wrap belt that I've been wanting for ages! They're incredibly hard to find, especially in the quality that I got for only $8, which in my book is a complete steal!
It's made of suede, and although the picture is burgundy above, mine is actually brown. I will tell you, it's absolutely lovely. I tested it around my hip, and then at my natural waist, which is the skinniest part of my torso right below my rib cage. The double wrap fitted perfectly around my hip, size small, and at the natural waist, I did a fancy over under look to give a bit more of a stylish but less trimmed look. Both worked quite beautifully.
Pleased I must say!
Ann Taylor Loft and Ann Taylor: Additional 40% off already reduced items in-store or online (use code extra Save40 for Loft and Extra40 for Taylor). I believe the codes are good until at least Monday. Don't quote me though.
EDIT: As I just tried to order the dress online, it seems that the SAVE40 cannot be applied as it's already applied by Loft automatically.
Happy shopping none the less. The items are all really great quality.
